I wear many hats, have many skills and talents. Nonetheless I'm one and the same person; my authentic self !! On this page I share some of my words, wisdom, thoughts, photos, humour, work, yoga, meditations…..
How I recently experienced the power of proper breathing.
A couple weeks ago I had a root canal treatment. It wasn’t my first one ever. But for this one, I had to go to an Endodontist, a specialist for those kind of procedures. I spare you of the details.
The procedure took about two hours. I couldn’t do much, lying there with my mouth open, breathing through the nose.

At the same time I like to keep my yoga website www.hathayogaipswich.com.au about yoga, class info, etc. Even though every so often I share other topics.
This year I started to be more active on Instagram @premamaria, sharing photos and gratitude posts.
